Part I describes the campaigns in Norway and Denmark (background of German operations, landings, plans, operations in southern/central/northern Norway, and the campaign in Norway).

Subject: Cold Weather Warfare
Having served in Alaska, this one is personally meaningful. Warfare in extreme cold is unlike any other kind of fighting, and training is everything in it.
